CASE-ing Christmas: Challenge #1!


Hi, friends!  I am SUPER DUPER excited today to share with you that I have started a new holiday card challenge called CASE-ing Christmas!  We will be having weekly challenges and the premise is totally easy--just CASE the card that's provided.  All the details can be found on the challenge blog. :)  Here's this week's card...


This card was made by yours truly a few years back.  I decided to use the same color scheme and a new dove image.  Take a peek at what I created with this inspiration...


This new image is from a bag of stamps I got at a consignment sale.  I colored it in with a gold glitter gel pen in areas after heat embossing it onto specialty paper.  The shine in real life is amazing and was hard to photograph.


I added this image to the card base and then decided to highlight it with some gold leaves from my stash and a cream flower from Inspired By Stamping.  More shine and texture. :)


The card base was created with glitter paper, gold elastic trim, a punched border and gold pearls.  I think that this color scheme is very elegant, don't you?


The whole card looks so sparkly and joyful--perfect for a holiday greeting!  What do you think of this card?  Leave me a comment and let me know!


That's all for me today!  I'll be back next week with another card for CASE-ing Christmas, and I hope you hop on over and join in our current challenge!  I cannot wait to see what you will create for us!  HUGS and MERRY stamping to you all!

These cards both look fantastic. They've got so many similarities, yet they look very different.
